The leather skirt and the Boston sneakers



Leather skirt - Mango
Sweatshirt - Topshop
White blazer - Zara
Sneakers - Isabel Marant

As for the sneakers, if you follow me on Instagram (@fashion_caramel) you saw that I almost returned them. Yes, what was I thinking ???  I'm not sure that it will be a long term love story but for now they are perfect. I just need to find ways to dress them up to work, it would be a pity to only wear them on the weekends...

Out of curiosity and personal interest, do you wear your sneakers to work ?

  1. J'adore! MAis je n'ai jamais porté de sneakers au bureau. Peut-être cette année, les Bazil avec des collants opaques, un vendredi cool ...

  3. 6 months ago, I would NEVER ever contemplate wearing a pair of sneakers with skirts or dresses. But these wedge sneakers just have a way of elongating the legs and look rather flattering. Love those Bostons with leather skirt. You took a simple yet very chic outfit and gave it a more edgy vibe.

    1. Oh thanks, Marlene ! what a wonderful comment :)))
      I'm like you on the sneakers with a skirt, I would probably not have tried this look 6 months ago either and that's the fun part, right ? xx

  4. Purée mais cette association à laquelle je n'aurais jamais pensé est juste géniale!

  5. Coucou Marta !
    Alors tu vois, je ne suis pas une fan - a priori - de ces sneakers IM que beaucoup de monde possède - mais force est de constater que ton ensemble est vraiment réussi ! Je pense que ça ne va pas à tout le monde (euh sur moi notamment !!!), mais tu es longiligne et porté avec la jupette en cuir franchement j'aime vraiment beaucoup ! Tu me donnerais presque envie d'en acheter hi hi
    Encore merci pour ton gentil message sur la blouse IM (que de questions si oui, si non oh là là...); finalement je préfère le top Finn en noir, la blouse écru ne me va pas trop au teint malheureusement...(suis plutôt du genre pâlotte...snif).
    Très bonne soirée

    1. Le top Finn est superbe aussi, très bon choix :)
      Ecoutes, pour les sneakers IM, je dois dire que je n'étais pas super fan non plus, et puis y a quelques mois j'ai trouvé les bobby/betty plutôt sympa. Et l'idée de porter des sneakers à talons cachés ne peut que me plaire, combiner comfort et talons ce n'est pas courant ;)
      beijinhos para ti também xx

  6. One word... BRILLIANT! This is up there with some of my favourite outfits. So comfy and chic. I bet you are counting your blessings now for not returning the sneakers. Looking at this.. what were you thinking?! Ha ha.. I love that Mango leather skirt. I'm still on my leather bender. I look at all your Zara/Mango/Top Shop items and love them but I can never find them. I try so hard too. Maybe Australia has different stock or I'm just not quick enough. Lastly, send all these items to me when you tire of them. I love them all. Maybe we can start doing a wardrobe exchange program :)

    1. I definitely don't regret keeping the sneakers :)
      As for my zara/mango items, don't hesitate to ask me, I will gladly grab you some items and ship them over to you. The difference in the collections is probably due to opposite seasons, right ? Anyway, let me know if I can do something ! xx

  7. Hello:) Nice blog.
    I'm about to order the mango leather skirt. Could you tell me how the sizing is on this item? I'm mostly i size 36 in most european brands, but i don't know if should go for i size M in this one:)

  8. Hi Marie-Louise, thanks for your comment :))
    I would say that the skirt is true to size. I'm a size 27 (jeans) and between 36 and 38 in european brands. I took size M in this skirt because the S was too small. The M is a little bit loose though. I think you should go with S. Let me know how it goes ! xx

  10. Yes, I wear my Isabel Marant sneakers at work.

    If I have a meeting I change the sneakers to heels. I always have at least 3 pair of shoes at work :-)

    By the way I love my IM sneakers, all of them.
